AllMusic Review by

Bob Wills and his Texas Playboys are giants in American music. They birthed a new genre--western swing--by combining old-time string music and jazz , mixing the most rural elements of the former with the most urban of the latter. They also popularized pedal steel guitar--an innovation that defines much music as "country" to this day. Looming larger than these accomplishments, however, are Wills's songs, and LEGENDS OF COUNTRY MUSIC: BOB WILLS AND HIS TEXAS PLAYBOYS contains four discs' worth of classics, including "Right or Wrong," "San Antonio Rose," "Faded Love," "Stay A Little Longer," and many others.
